Expression analysis of high throughput data using statistical techniques for data analysis including supervised and unsupervised learning and simulation. Data classification with machine learning algorithms including multiple linearregression and logisticregression. micoRNAs expression analysis, elucidation of microRNAs role in regulation of gene expression To meet this microRNA  micro array and RNA-seq analysis,RNAi including inhibition of miRNA specific for target gene regulation. Research focused on the transciptome network construction to identify biomarkers through Network modules and hub genes identification.
